We'll be taking over soon! :D
Some of my Dad's siblings were also born in Denmark Street, I'm sure you can add some more memories.
Lesanne, have emailed you regarding the BRO.
Cheers all,
Abiam :)

Hi Lesanne
Thanks for the offer.

Nothing I need right now for the Denmark st. area.

Just having a prob. at the moment trying to find parents of an Elizabeth Day - my dads paternal gran.

Know she was b. 1863 Burghfield and married Walter Read 1884 at Wokingham, but haven't got the marr. cert.

She married again in 1900 (bit iffy that one!) Henry G. Lockyer, and they ended up living in Alwyn rd .  My mum can remember them.  If you get any chance with that one would be very grateful.

Just had a quick look at the dads birth cert, sorry they moved top Denmark st, actually born 14 Cordwallis St (1913).  Mum and dad married in St Lukes church in 1935.  Recognise a lot of the names that have been mentioned before.  The Misses Westlake (there were two sisters, neither married) re Elmslie school, lived a few doors from us at Furze Platt.

Can remember playing tennis in the road with my brother who did a beaut of a return shot, straight through their greenhouse window.  Needless to say we disappeared quick!!

best regards

Hi Lesanne

Thanks for your kind welcome. I think I may like this site very much.
You have brought back memories of the vegetable horse and cart. I recall people rushing out with a shovel to gather the horse manure for their gardens (nothing else being available in wartime).

Also the little boys hanging on the back for a ride.

Hi Abiam

Thanks for your welcome also.  I was at the County Girls School from 1946 to 1951 (I think - it's long ago). Neverthless I would like your pics of the school photos '53and '56 as my sister was still there. Of course I will e-mail my photos. I agree, Queen Anne House should never have been allowed to be pulled down.

I have been asked the names of teachers at the . All I can recall are the following:

Head Mistress: Miss Wingate for a very short time, then Miss Costello.
Miss Spooner, Miss White, Miss Tozer, Miss Richmond. I'm sure the others will come to mind eventually.

Now I have made three posts so I will try to e-mail this weekend.

I lived in maidenhead when I started school at age 4 and think she could have easily attended East Street Infants school, where I started at the end of the last war as it is very old, and is near enough to Denmark Street to count.
